Author of the bestselling business book Who Moved My Cheese?, Spencer Johnson was busy writing a sequel to the best-seller. Unfortunately far before the publication he passed away in 2017, he seemed to have finished his book and was in the process of discussing the edits with the publisher.
The book, titled ‘Out of the Maze: A Story About the Power of Belief’, is being published by Portfolio, an imprint of the Penguin Publishing Group.
“I knew that Spencer was not well when we had our last editorial conversation about the book, but I wasn’t aware of the gravity of his illness,” Adrian Zackheim, President of Portfolio said in a statement. “I was shocked when I learned that he had died just a few days after we talked about revisions to the manuscript. Fortunately, Spencer bequeathed a wonderful book to us.”
The release of Out of the Maze coincides with the 20th anniversary of Who Moved My Cheese?. It will released on September 4.
